What is the BTN Practical Academy
The BTN Practical Academy is a 12 month live and interactive evidence based practically driven online nutrition course taught by dieticians, sports nutritionists, university lecturers, psychologists, GB athletes and experienced coaches.
This 12 month online nutrition course aims to teach nutrition at its most practical level delving into specialist populations, advanced body composition, sports performance, obesity, behavioural psychology, hormones, female health, and much more. With the broad nature of the Practical Academy we will evolve you into a competent coach that can work with a broad range of clientele which will result in you being a fully qualified BTN Certified Nutritionist.
Our BTN Business Academy modules span a wide range of topics, all with the aim of improving your understanding of running your fitness business, and having a thriving and rewarding business. If you have been through the process of learning about nutrition, training, movement and mindset to enhance the results your clients get, it is now time to enhance your business understanding so your coaching business truly thrives.
In the BTN Business Academy you can learn anything from social media marketing, to building and running a gym, to building a website and optimising your on-site SEO. All BTN Business Academy modules are £25.00, with Foundation Academy students getting 25% off all modules, and Practical Academy students getting 50% off.

The Business academy has been fundamental in helping me achieve a personal training business with a service offering that is miles ahead of any other trainer in my local area. I am able to work less and earn more and attract long term clients I am passionate about supporting. The academy as got me working effectively on my business and out of my comfort zone in terms of marketing and has taught me how to use social media platforms to my advantage and how to structure the content I deliver which has directly lead to successful sales. On top of this the BTN team has taught me how to add value within what I offer allowing me to sell my product ethically and with confidence helping me establish core values and run my business with integrity.
After finding somewhere I could fully learn, implement and gain qualifications in nutrition, and having completed the foundation and practical academies, I was still unsure about how to go about setting up a business and going for it by myself. I had lots of questions that needed answering. I enrolled on the BTN business academy working my way through the modules. This completely changed my outlook on what I thought my business would look like and where it was going. Module by module little gems and thoughts would emerge as I went through everything from tax & setting up a company, to building a gym, online & offline marketing, social media, face to face coaching, I literally immersed myself in all of it. I can honestly say after the business course I now have a streamlined business ready to go. I am confident of success and can see the plan coming together and how it will expand in the future. If you thought you knew about where your business is going, this will make you realise where it really needs to go, and most importantly, how.
I have picked up loads of new tips already, so really looking forward to having the right tools at the end., and the group is spot on. I'm sure everyone is still picking up something along the way from each other too.
